On the 6th of June 2018, staff attended an event at our sister centre, the Queen Square Radiosurgery Supra Centre for the South of England  as they plan to install the Leksell Gamma Knife Icon – the latest precision radiosurgery platform from Elekta. Presentations were provided by amongst others by Mr Neil Kitchen, Clinical Lead and Ian Paddick, Chief Physicist. Cornel Tancu, Clinical Research Fellow presented “Gamma Knife Radiosurgery for Brain Mestastases – Predictors for overall survival” which can be viewed here.

This summer  the Leksell Gamma Knife Icon – the latest precision radiosurgery platform from Elekta will be installed at Queen Square

The Icon enables the option to perform single or fractionated, frame-based or frameless treatments, allowing for more individualised delivery – without sacrificing precision or accuracy. For a short video click on the image below.
